The talented violinist Alexander Rybak came to our country to appear on April 29th at the theatre “Coliseo”. In front of a feverish audience, the artist was able to impose his particular style and performed some songs of all genres: Pop, jazz, tango, classical and dance. A musical mixture that allowed the audience to realise why the young and prestigious artist has shone in every scenario he has stepped into in recent years. Full schedule for the artist in our country this week.

17. December – Letter S – Stary Klion

julekort calender2014 Stary Klion julekort calender2014

As we have seen before, Alexander never forgets his Slavic roots, as he shows us every time he visits a Russian-speaking country.

Как мы уже заметили ранее, Александр никогда не забывает свои славянские корни. Он демонстрирует нам это каждый раз, когда посещает русскоговорящие страны.
Como hemos visto antes, Alexander nunca olvida sus raíces eslavas, como nos muestra cada vez que visita un país de habla rusa.
Wie wir schon zuvor gesehen haben, vergißt Alexander nie seine slawischen Wurzeln. Er zeigt uns dies jedes Mal, wenn er ein russisch sprachiges Land besucht.

When Alexander Rybak was going to shoot his biggest music video so far for the single “Into A Fantasy”, he was never in any doubt about where. Namely at Vestkapp at Stad in Selje municipality.

– Everytime I am in this natural environment, I come up with something new and write new music,- says Rybak.

For example the Eurovision hit “Fairytale” was made when he visited Ålesund, and the song he won the “Kjempesjansen” with, was also written only a stones throw from Vestkapp.

– It’s a 100 percent beautiful nature here, with changing weather, soft beaches, deep valleys and exposed mountain tops. It’s something that awakens the versatility in me, says Rybak enthusiastically.

At the harsh Stadplatået there is for once no wind. The sky is blue and it is a clear view to Svinøy Lighthouse and south to Bremanger.

How we discovered Alexander Rybak – Songs and stories

A while back we asked if you had any questions for Alexander, and we also wanted to hear your stories of How you discovered him. So here we present some of your stories and the songs connected to them.

Europe’s skies

  • Hello Alexander! Maybe you do not know anything about this little country in South America, anyway I want to thank you because while everything is a chaos here, I can dream and be happy just listening to your music. I dream with finding a place where I can feel comfortable, a place that I can call home. For that reason, “Europe’s Skies” is a very special song for me, because somehow it says what I feel. Yazly, Venezuela 
  • The way I got to know your songs. Last year I heard Europe’s skies in a forum in someone’s profile and then fell in love with it…then Fairytale and the Eurovision stage it was so exciting. Now I think there isn’t any video of u on YouTube that I haven’t seen and 24/7 is your songs…for getting rid of confusion of my lessons and calming down a bit… Mahdiyeh, Iran
  • Hi Alex! When I heard your music first, I was searching on the net. It happened 2 years ago. My favorites are the Fairytale, Europe’s skies, Roll with the wind… but the best is Europe’s skies. Virág, Hungary
